We have collaborated with Ammo Magazine and illustrator Nick Deakin to produce this limited edition letterpress print. Nick’s bold line work makes a wonderful impression into Saunders 425gsm cotton, chosen  for it’s weight and texture.

We converted Nick’s digital artwork to colour separations, outputted to film and made our photopolymer plates. The smallest detail in the illustration is transferred faithfully to the plates which are mounted on aluminum bases to type height and locked up in the chase. We printed each plate/colour simultaneously on 2 Heidelberg platens achieving accurate registration. Nick supplied Pantone colour refs and the inks were hand mixed to match.

The A5, 2 colour print is signed by the artist and comes with latest lumberjack themed magazine. The print is limited to 500 so be quick!

2 colour and deboss business cardsLightbulb are a design consultancy with bright ideas looking for a print finish to give their business cards another dimension. The design was created for letterpress and the black and grey ink sinks deep into the 425gsm pure cotton paper. The focal point though is the debossed lightbulb, certain to draw attention when handed out. A deboss clearly shows the impression letterpress can make into the paper, leaving a beautiful tactile finish only possible with this amazing technique.

Chrysanthemum Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Chrysanthemum letterpress wedding invitationChrysanthemum letterpress wedding invitationChrysanthemum letterpress wedding invitationChrysanthemum letterpress wedding invitationLetterpress menuEmily had seen our Chrysanthemum correspondence cards and greeting card and asked us to adapt the design to create her wedding invitation and menu card. We discussed preferred colour palettes and provided a couple of layout and colour variations for Emily’s approval. The invitations and menus are printed on heavy 425gsm 100% cotton paper in lime green and brown and were supplied with matching envelopes.

The chrysanthemum drawing is taken from an original pencil drawing by Blush’s very own Alison and was originally part of a range of greeting cards. We are often asked to adapt one of our greeting card designs into a range of wedding stationery.
